Usher is pulling double duty on the latest leg of his OMG tour. The singer will partner with local schools and community organizations in New York City, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago and Vancouver to meet with up-and-coming youth leaders though Usher's New Look Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that provides youth with leadership training in the areas of talent, education, career and service.

“Music is what brings us together as one world and I’m excited to see this generation use its voice to be powered by service,” Usher told TheBoomBox.com. “Our youth leaders have been doing an incredible job throughout the country and around the world. We are excited to bring this successful model to these five great cities.”

The Powered By Service Tour started this past Sunday, in New York City.
